AITA SHAAB, Lebanon, (AFP) - More than three years after the last war between Israel and Hezbollah, south Lebanon residents are bracing for new conflict amid Israeli warnings against both Hezbollah and its backer Syria. If you come back, well be waiting for you, the Shia group warns Israel on a billboard near the southern village of Aita Shaab. It was across the border from Aita Shaab that Hezbollah fighters captured two Israeli soldiers in a deadly cross-border raid in July 2006, provoking a devastating month-long Israeli assault against Hezbollah strongholds in south Lebanon and Beiruts southern suburb. The Israeli aggression killed more than 1,200 people in Lebanon, mainly civilians, and 160 Israelis, most of them soldiers. We are afraid, of course, said Hayat, a resident of the southern village of Qana, which came under deadly bombardment in the 2006 war. Every day we hear news of a possible new war, she tells AFP from her terrace which overlooks the village cemetery. She said she feared any renewed fighting would see even the heart of the capital Beirut bombed. Where will we hide? she asked. Her neighbour Diba agreed that any new conflict risked being more devastating than 2006. If war erupts, Syria and Iran will participate too. Next time it will not be limited to Hezbollah.
